Feedback on Commission initiatives on data

FESE supports the European Commission’s plan to propose an overarching data strategy that has the potential to achieve the benefits of the single market. We note, however, that the Commission has produced an increasing number of initiatives in the data space and are concerned that the scope of the various initiatives might overlap to a significant degree.

FESE calls for a holistic approach and urges the Commission to perform a general assessment of both the current proposals being discussed as well as those to come in the future. We stand ready to provide the Commission with further clarity on the information reported by regulated markets.
